Grave Robber Series

Grave Robber Series

Are you ready for the rapture? Now that is a loaded question for some. For others it is terrifying. For others it is confusing. And for others they just wonder what it might mean.

This rotation of Core begins a four week look at a specific sign of the end times that all followers are impacted by – The Rapture.

We will use God’s Word to understand and in very practical ways make this sometimes tough concept easy to understand.

It will be helpful, hopeful, and every once in a while hilarious. And each week you will get your very own Grave Robber Guide to the Rapture – what else could you need – right?

Remember our new series called Phenomenal begins this weekend @ 434. We are going to be looking at seven miracles that Jesus did as recorded in the book of John. Each one points us to a deeper understanding and trust in Jesus. Just as a note, the final session in Phenomenal series is entitled “The Grave Robber” – which is why this rotation of CORE is so important to understand. Connect, grow, and let’s spend this rotation together.

The CFG (Crazy Follower Gospel) CORE Series

There is nothing more thrilling in life than allowing Jesus to make us crazy dangerous followers…. He did not die for your safety, He died for your sanity…and the only way to find it is to go all in, make it all or nothing, it is now or never…. and your live will suddenly become sane and crazy dangerous….

Ghost Tours CORE Series

It is amazing how many times the Bible makes reference to a concept called “walking in the Spirit”
If you think about it, it must be important if the idea shows up over and over again…but how do you do it? What does that look like?
In a supplemental study to our worship series called “Ghost Stories” you are invited to join us for “Ghost Tours”
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is familiar to all of us, so taking a walk with The Holy Ghost or a Ghost Tour is what we are exploring.

Under God or Over God CORE Series

In the pages of history, in the early days of the twentieth century, Germany did not look like a country on the brink of world shattering horror. Truth be told, and truth is so important… it looked like America today.
This series “Under God – Over God” takes a look at history and encourages us not to make the mistakes of days gone by but instead following God, Who always has a plan.
The choice is ours, will we as a people choose to live Under God or instead decide that the culture knows better and simply declare we are Over God?
Over the 4 week series we will discover 7 big concepts that we can prayerfully and hopefully engage as we live through this era in history where our faith really counts.

One of the most problematic things for people to do is to move from what they know they should do – to – actually doing what they should do.
In other words, how do you get into action? This study challenges us to take each day, decide to seize it, then really live it. We move from being passive to being aggressive, in the best possible way.
It is time to do something – so get started

Tomorrowland CORE Series

“How we live each 24 hours gets us ready to move into the next day with momentum, clarity, and passion”

R.I.O.T. – Righteous Invasion of Truth

This CORE series serves as the bookend of where we have been.
We as a church have had to look at ways to reimagine ministry in a world of turbulent elections, civil unrest, pandemics, school closures, shutdowns, face coverings, social distancing, and a cancel culture.

Last year we began a very interesting journey in our CORE studies. As we elected new leaders we offered – Is Jesus a Democrat, Independent, or Republican?

Then we followed it up with 3 studies on the End Times…The final session of the end times trilogy was a stand-alone session focusing on America in the End Times….

And that brings us to this study. This serves as the bookend to the set of studies we have done in CORE and builds upon what we have looked at in both our Mid-Week studies and our Celebration Worship studies. This new series is called RIOT

Watercooler conversations have shifted in our culture….
It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do – there in your face is a constant barrage of what is happening in the world around us. It creates fear, angst, concern about the things going on and is born out of a need to be able to get some type of handle on them, trying to understand them, and most importantly trying to figure out how to navigate them.

The questions that emerge – tend to always come back to the big one – “what do I do as a follower of Christ?”
There is no shortage of commentators, opinions, and emotional manipulators that will gripe, groan, grovel, or grimace at the way things are – but again…we keep coming back to what do we do? How do we do it? And how do we know it is the right thing to do?

The church has to be willing to step out, step up, and step into the conversation. Because, let’s be honest about the world we live in. There is always someone willing to drive the narrative, so do you want to be driven or do you want to drive? Get ready for a real, rational, relational, and revolutionary way to navigate the culture in a way that is transformational – RIOT in CORE @ 434.

Is Jesus a Democrat, an Independent or a Republican Series

It seems that every year when an election cycle rolls around things get a little bit crazy. This year is no exception. However, have you ever pondered how your faith in Jesus collides with your political philosophy? Have you ever thought that how you vote and how you function as a citizen really matters to Jesus? It might matter a lot more than you think it does. So get ready, there is an election just around the corner and we are longing to hear the phrase – “I am Jesus Christ, the One and Only Living God… and I AM endorses this message.”

It is that time of year. The holidays are upon us. Thanksgiving and Christmas make this the most wonderful time of the year… but are you ready? This series counts down the moments and magic of the holiday, in the best possible way – by helping us to remember and celebrate what is most important!

The Monsters That are Hiding in the Closet!

It doesn’t take a whole lot of living to realize that life can be tough.
As a matter of fact, life can be frightening at times. There are so many things that are coming at us, so many things we worry about, so many things we are unsure of that we can easily feel overwhelmed and afraid.
It may not be something we talk about much, but in the quiet moments of our lives, those things that frighten us creep out of the closet and keep us awake at night.
How do we handle the tough and scary moments? What do we do? This audio CORE series offers some help and encouragement for those times.

I Need a Little Christmas Now

It is that time of year… or almost. It seems like it happens earlier each year, but as November arrives we begin to see decorations, lights, the stores, Hallmark Channel, even the music on the radio turns toward Christmas. There is something about our culture that has a need for Christmas. Now, to be honest… many people miss the meaning or don’t know why they are celebrating. But for those who know Jesus, there is no mystery at all, we realize that Christmas comes and gives us a realistic way to look at life.

It does not say – “if we just cheer up we can make the world a better place.” It doesn not suggest that “we can fix things if we try hard enough.” Instead Christmas gives us a poerful reminder that “there is hope.” And that is very good news.

So this series admits, “I need a little Christmas now…” Get ready for the holiday rotation of Mid-Week.

Mission Control

This study is a look at some essentials for each of us in our personal journey of faith.

Bigfoot, Nessie, and You… what do they have in common? Well, perhaps more than you might think. In our quest to be the best version of ourselves – how do you discover the real you?

Entering the Upside Down

Stranger Things has reminded us that we live in a world that is Upside Down. If we are going to turn the Upside Down upside down – which actually makes it right side up again – then we have to understand how to do it. In Acts 17, we discover how to speak into an upside down culture in ways that open the conversation to talking about Jesus. This CORE series, which enhances our Celebration Worship series, called Stranger Things, helps us add depth to how we approach the world around us.

The Chase is On

There is a life that we all desire to live. Most have a desire to get it right. But do we know how? This CORE series dares to think about what it means to follow God on His terms, not our terms. Does that matter? Of course it does. However, we have all found that trying to follow God leaves us a bit perplexed at times. The time has come to get moving – the chase is on. Let’s pursue the life that we are created to live, by following the God who created us. This series takes the Celebration Worship series, entitle Lifehacks, to an even deeper level.

I’m Anxious About Being Anxious

It might sound silly but it is very real. We get anxious at times because we get anxious. We tend to realize that we don’t need to let worry consume us but it is not easy – is it?

It is not as tough as you think. It is more practical than you realize, and you may be just a choice away from really living.

Week 3 is missing due to technical difficulties.

Grace is a Game Changer

God’s Grace is Bigger & Better than we ever imagined. When we begin to experience it we discover a hope and peace that gives us the freedom to face each moment of our life differently. If all of that is true, and it is… it makes sense that something should be happening in our lives. This Mid-Week study is designed to remind us of how this looks in the very real world we live in.

Rock Solid Realities

Life is tough and there are moments when we struggle more than we would like. However, in each of those tough moments, there are some truths – some realities that help us anchor our life and allow us to keep moving forward. Understanding and knowing these “rock solid realities” can make all the difference. This series will help us discover them.

He Said What???

Have you ever been reading the Bible and read something Jesus said and paused…?
You pause and reread what He said because it sounded a bit harsh, a bit abrupt, or a bit tougher than you would like it to sound.
The reality is – that Jesus said some tough things in Scripture. Ah, but because Jesus loves us so much, there had to be a reason He said these things… and the good news is that there is a reason. So this CORE study allows you to peel back the tough words and understand that they really mean and why they are so important.

In every person’s life journey
There is a moment when you have to quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death

You have to roll up your sleeves, track them, and chase dreams if you are ever going to live one out

This CORE series is designed to enhance the celebration worship series entitled – Chasing Change, where we discover the life God has created us for is something that we can have, but we have to be willing to be obedient and run toward it, not away from it!

“Astonishing” Adventure – Destination Adventure

As we explore and engage the adventure that God has called us to, we need to stop and take a closer look at how well we know God Himself. If you haven’t looked at God lately and been astonished, then maybe you aren’t really looking. This audio series is designed to refocus our attention and see God clearly…and maybe in a way we haven’t for some time.

It Won’t Last – The Anatomy of Crisis

Life can be a struggle. We face ongoing problems that seem to follow us each day of our lives. We struggle with being average, with life being boring, we want peace in a world that is constant turmoil, we face situations that threaten to gobble us up, and even when we are trying to do our best, we often mess up and sometimes even fail. All in all, it can make our quality of life a lot less than we want. In this series of audio studies, you get some real life, real practical, good news about life and those moments that just aren’t going how you hoped. Bible teacher Jeff Dixon shares the anatomy of a crisis, how we face them, what we need to know, and most importantly truth from God’s Word as to what to do next.

Heroes – In Action

In a culture that is fascinated with super heroes many followers of Jesus never pause to consider the call of Christ in their own lives. When you get serious about becoming the person you were created to be you realize that you are called to be a hero. In this series we talk about what it takes to get you moving and start building the momentum you need to be the hero you are destined to be. You really are a hero in the making… are you ready for action?]
